jugglers - BMW Open 2008 Players Party

The organizers of the BMW Open hosted a players’ party on Monday night at P1 in Munich. Since you weren’t there, I will summarize the party in five words: mustachioed racquet-jugglers in short shorts.

Gael Monfils and Fernando Gonzalez - BMW Open 2008 Players’ Party

Not enough words? How about “Gael Monfils and Fernando Gonzalez in lederhosen.” I’m glad they found a hat big enough to fit his dreads.

Marat Safin - BMW Open 2008 Players Party

A sun-kissed Marat Safin… wearing stripes! He’s into the second round after beating Carlos Berlocq 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

Tommy Haas - BMW Open 2008 Players’ Party

Poor Tommy Haas withdrew today because of his nagging shoulder injury. This most recent flare-up also forced him to back out of ATP Tour stops in Hamburg and Rome, and leaves him doubtful for an appearance at the French. Tournament director Patrick Kuehnen lost his other top draw when defending champion Philipp Kohlschreiber withdrew because of a cold.

Tommy Haas - BMW Open 2008 Players’ Party

Maybe he just forgot to stretch and warm up before playing Wii Golf?
